Base64 images... An alternative to sprites?Base64 images... An alternative to sprites?

While I don't fully agree with the drawbacks that were mentioned for using sprites (most of my disagreement comes from how organized I keep my image files) I do think this article raises some very awesome points about what base64 can do.  I would like to build a test to see how a sprite would compare in the charts presented so I am going to try to take that on this week.  Either way its alwasy good to learn a new frontend approach from time to time - especially if it relates to performance
